about

Dublin gritty melodic punks GRIT are gathering pace fast despite their short existence, having hooked the punk scene with their catchy 6 track demo.GRIT have seemingly came out of nowhere, with members of GRIT more known for their crust/hardcore punk bands of the past. With a sound resembling certain predecessors of early European hardcore punk with a slight oi! vibe. GRITs socially charged female fronted straight-up punk rock that hits hard standing parallel with earlier punk of the late '70s or early '80s. Sharp cutting punk riffs driven by powerful beats with plenty of melody in vocals carried on a bed of choruses which ‘ouuhs’ and ‘aaahs’ in the background. The call for ‘Ghost Estates’ to be pressed in wax was clear and loud.

Track Name: CONCRETE SEA
Rain pools in the street
Cold bites into your veins
Every face has a scar
Getting sucked down into the tar

Her hands are swollen and bruised
Blown out blue tattoos
A cigarette for comfort
Solace in her bottle of booze

She has a story to tell
Another personal hell
The whole city is deaf to a person like her

Everyday we struggle to stay afloat
In a concrete sea that could swallow us down
Hold my hand and hold your breath on dry land
So we don't drown

Struggle to stay afloat in a concrete sea
Struggle to stay afloat in a concrete sea
Hold my hand and hold your breath on dry land
So we don't drown
Track Name: STRAY BULLET
Dealers that have the tender
A community lives in fear
Untouchable men of violence
Wrecking lives and selling gear

Your ma won't sell her body
Your bro won't steal your score
You won't turn on the light in the middle of the night
And find a hard-man at your door

Pills and powders, it's just a lark
Have some fun, there's no harm done
Not your family being ripped apart

Dealers that have the tender
A community lives in fear
Untouchable men of violence
Wrecking lives and selling gear

Fairtrade coffee, union dues
Might cleanse your conscience
But can't you see the truth?

No-one 'round your way ever had to dodge a stray bullet
Track Name: BACKUP LOADER
7am phone calling
Backup Loader needed to come in
Still in the scratch
I need the cash though
Shake last night's beer off
Lace up my steel toes
Get out the door

Oh what a pointless waste of labour
Oh what a fucking waste of time
Oh what a pointless waste of labour
Build it up, just to tear it down

Band was a no-show
Handy few quid though
My effort wasted
But Extra Stout I can taste it
Track Name: RUNDOWN TOWN
Nobody under 50
Undertakers are busy
Grocery closed after 80 years
All of the chemists do okay

Where is the hope in a rundown town?
Where can it be found?

Smack is getting a foothold
Five bookies on high street
Queues out the welfare door
On signing-on day

Shop fronts like rotten teeth
Street names ancient memories of industry
This town is left to ghosts and decay
I wish it wasn't this way

I'm looking for hope
Hope in a rundown town
